Drunk and Ready Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Sept. 7 2013

In an era of low-stakes online dating, Redtwist's sharp new comedy is set where some increasingly fear to tread: a desperation-soaked pickup bar in the key of Rush Street. It may not be the best reintroduction to courtship for Kimberley, dragged out by a pair of girlfriends a year after the death of her fiance, but it's an excellent venue for Scott Woldman's witty examination of the hazards of trying to meet a man. The actors in director Michael Osinski's ensemble portray an incompetent stream of suitors with versatility and sympathy—we feel almost as sorry for the poor chaps as for their uninterested targets. The ending is weak and full of loose ends, but maybe no more so than an actual night out on Rush would be. —Keith Griffith
